It pissed me off that they released Eternia and slapped Tales of Destiny II on it.

Tales of Eternia was renamed because "Eternia" is trademarked by Mattel (for the He-Man toys) in North America. Nothing to do with them being retards; just avoiding a lawsuit.

I'll be probably getting this game since I loved Vesperia (my first Tales game) which I only decided to give a chance because I heard it was making 360s sell like hot cakes in Japan.

I just looked a screenshot of Vesperia and comparing it to the Graces demo makes me feel somewhat sad. Sure, I know it's a port of the Wii with enhanced graphics but they could've used a lot of the stuff from Vesperia in Graces.
Forgive my ignorance if what I'm saying is far from the truth but considering the game is from a similar series it could have the same monsters and since they're ready it should not be a problem. Also a lot of the environments could use similar textures or even models.

The only real work should be the character models, especially giving them facial expressions for all cutscenes but it could be worth it to please fans. The NPCs could've been swapped from the ones in Vesperia instead of redoing every single one of them.

I know I'm asking too much but considering how Vesperia looks good and Xilia is looking really good (even Eternal Sonata) it should not hurt Namco to make it a little prettier.

I kinda liked it being called Tales of Destiny II... it covered up the hideous symbol behind it.  Some black shit, made it look like Halloween.

Is there any major difference that will make me want to wait until the day I (hopefully) get a PS3 to get this game or should I just get it for Wii over summer? Also, is it multi-player?
If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

Er...the PS3 version will be in English.  The Wii version will not.

That's a pretty big difference.

The original Tales of Graces wasn't in English? I thought I saw it at Gamestop a few months ago... Oh well, I guess I'll have to get Tales of Graces F then.

I may as well get ready to pre-order this then...

Confirmed for 2012 and PS3, and I caught this on Neogaf: Amazon's currently allowing you to pre-order it for $40. Whether it's a pricing mistake or the intended MSRP it's a good idea to pre-order now and lock it in. Deal's dead! Now we wait and see if they cancel orders or not.

I coulda sworn back on that taleoftworichards thing, it confirmed that it would come out SUMMER 2011.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

No, it never had any sort of release timeframe until this morning.

Kind of disappointing that they're taking so long to localize.  I was hoping for a 2011 release.

Oh well, I'm still going to get it.  No shortage of games for me to play at the moment...

I was hoping for a 2011 release.With Mass Effect 3,The Witcher 2 ,Skyrim and Tales of Graces F this would have been my finest RPG year since 1999.

With Tales of Graces F pushed back,I may be forced to get a 3DS earlier than expected for my JRPG fix.
